If you happen to use Google Earth on an iOS-powered device (namely the iPad and the iPhone), then surely you would have noticed that the latest version of Google Earth for iOS will now be able to support the visual wonders of 3D imagery – that is, your eyes are treated to 3D City View and Tour Guide, amongst others. According to Google, a map should be comprehensive and accurate regardless of your current position, and neither should the kind of device that you use to navigate yourself through unfamiliar territory be an obstacle.
With the latest release of Google Earth for iOS, you will be able to literally fly through breathtaking 3D city landscapes and images, in addition to following virtual tours of places which you have yet to step foot on in real life, all using but a single, simple fingertip swipe. Some of the 3D cities include Boulder, Boston, Charlotte, Lawrence (Kan.), Long Beach (Ca.), Los Angeles, Portland (Ore.), San Diego, Santa Cruz, Tampa, Tucson, and the San Francisco Bay Area (which will include the Peninsula and East Bay). How about some exotic spots across the pond? There is Rome in Italy, and Google does not intend to stop here, but rather, will work on releasing more 3D imagery for new locations in the future.
